Starting at 1:00pm, participate in activities suitable for families of all generations and all definitions. Learn about image-making in relation to imagination and automation with stop-motion challenges, make-your-own zoetropes, and curatorial-led tours of the CCP’s newest exhibition, “A Portrait of Poetry.” Family-friendly snacks will be provided, and self-packed snacks are welcome in the public foyer. At 2:00pm, enjoy a screening of Hugo inside the CCP! 

“Magical and imaginative, this eye-popping masterpiece from director Martin Scorsese will transport audiences to a place they won’t believe.” – Pete Hammond, Boxoffice Magazine

In celebrated filmmaker Martin Scorsese’s spectacular adventure Hugo, based on the children’s book The Invention of Hugo Cabret, a resourceful orphan unlocks a fantastic secret involving the history of cinema, which changes his world forever! Orphaned and alone except for an uncle, Hugo Cabret (Asa Butterfield) lives in the walls of a train station in 1930s Paris. Hugo’s job is to oil and maintain the station’s clocks, but to him, his more important task is to protect a broken automaton and notebook left to him by his late father (Jude Law). Accompanied by Isabelle (Chloë Grace Moretz), the goddaughter of an embittered toy merchant (Ben Kingsley), Hugo embarks on a quest to solve the mystery of the automaton and find a place he can call home.  As the adventure unfolds, Hugo and Isabelle are drawn to a motion picture museum, where they meet an eccentric film scholar. In helping to unlock the secret of the automaton, they learn about the roots of cinema, starting with the Lumière brothers, and give a forgotten movie pioneer (Georges Méliès, director of the classic silent film, A Trip to the Moon) his due. Both a rip-roaring adventure filled with incredible special effects and a love letter to the magic of the movies, the Oscar-winning Hugo is one of Scorsese’s most personal, and purely fun, films.
